Fourteen years ago today I joined the Team at Warford Orthodontics, and in that time I've helped many thousands on their smile transformation journey and what possibilities it may bring to their future. I'm grateful for the opportunity to make such a difference in my Patient’s lives.
Orthodontic treatment is a journey, and the life transforming change doesn’t happen overnight. Over the years, I’ve had so many Patients tell me about the impact it has made, and the impact has been more than their teeth. Their smile transformation has been a catalyst for other transformations they’ve wanted to make, or goals they’ve wanted to achieve.

I climbed the mountain (under “Races” in the photo) with my wife in 2002. It was over 14,000 feet tall and took us 12 hours. We love the mountains, and it was the most difficult climb we had ever done. At the time, I had one year left in my orthodontic residency, one year left in a ten year “climb" to become an orthodontist. I took the photo myself in 2009 and remembered that climb and what it felt like to be on top that day.

What “mountain" are you climbing? What “mountain” have you always wanted to? Anything is possible, just like a confidence inspiring smile.

-Dr. John
